Jim Thorpe for Lacrosse was my guess, too.  Jim Thorpe was known for being an all-around sportsman, and is known to have played lacrosse, even making a top-ten list as a Lacrosse legend, but he isn't really noted for the sport.  I did arrive at the name due to a guess at the last name Thorpe, having found that that surname is associated with the sport, i.e., Regy Thorpe. Except for the first name, Regy Thorpe also fit the sportsperson clue - Was Judger - by having been a player-coach.
